Wedding Photography at Fennes for Katie & Daniel

Wedding Photography at Fennes for Katie & Daniel

Katie and Daniel booked us to provide their wedding photography at Fennes.  It was nice to be back at this wonderful and popular venue.

Arriving at Fennes the girls were busily getting ready upstairs in the house and Daniel and his Groomsmen were getting ready at Fennes as well so David and I split to cover all the preparations. Katie and Daniel were very relaxed about their Wedding especially as where their children were concerned. Belle, their daughter, was with the girls and Jake, their son was with Daniel and the Groomsmen. Recommended Wedding Photographer FennesPreparations were going well and when Daniel was ready with his Groomsmen, they had some pictures taken. Daniel then went to see the Registrars and then socialised with the Guests. Once Katie was ready we took some pictures upstairs. Katie’s Father was waiting for her to come down the stairs and we were there to capture this special moment when it happened.

The Ceremony and Reception

After meeting with the Registrars they took their places in the Pavilion. The Bridesmaids and Belle, the Flowergirl, went first, followed by Katie and her Dad. Recommended Wedding Photographer FennesAfter the Ceremony everyone went outside as the weather was nice. During the Drinks Reception we took the requested family pictures followed by some fun Bridal Party pictures. Jake, the Pageboy enjoyed helping David take the pictures! Katie and Daniel’s ‘together’ photos were taken during the afternoon as well. Fennes Recommended Wedding PhotographerThe Guests threw confetti over Katie and Daniel in the Gold Room just before the Guests were called into the Pavilion for the Wedding Breakfast. Katie and Daniel had a few minutes to themselves before they made their entrance into the Pavilion. After the Wedding Breakfast it was time for the Speeches. An couple of additional Speeches were made. Katie delivered one and so did Grace, Daniel’s daughter. They both did very well.

The Evening Reception

There was a short time before the start of the evening celebrations so we took Katie and Daniel for a short while for a few more pictures around Fennes including  a glorious sunset picture. Before their First Dance later Katie threw her bouquet. Sparklers, night bridge shots finished our coverage of Katie and Daniel’s Wedding a little later on.Fennes Wedding Photographer A great couple, a lovely family, and a most rewarding day with some lovely unexpected shots.

 
 
 

Pre-Wedding Pictures for Katie & Dan

Pre-Wedding Pictures for Katie & Dan

Katie and Daniel came to see us just before their Wedding and pre-wedding pictures. The wedding was last year at Fennes. They came with their children, Jake and Belle and it was nice to meet them before the Wedding.

After a coffee and a chat and filling in the details about their Wedding, we all went off to take a few pictures. Getting to know our clients before their big day is really important to us and we find a brief time in different surroundings provides an opportunity of getting to know each other better.

Fennes Wedding Photography for Debi & Rob

Fennes Wedding Photography for Debi & Rob

Debi and Rob booked us for Fennes Wedding Photography for their early autumn Wedding. After meeting everyone in the Bridal Room, we got on with taking pictures of the details and accessories. In between we made sure we captured the getting ready pictures of both Debi and Rob. David was with the men and once they were dressed they had some pictures taken outside as it was still dry.

A wedding Disaster!

The girls were nearly dressed but unfortunately the zip broke in the one of the Bridesmaids’ dresses! Not to worry, the only way to solve the problem was to sew the zip together! My job today, no problem! It was at this moment David returned! Good timing! David just carried on with the photography! Debi  was unaware of what was going on, which was fine by all of us! By the time Debi and the rest of the Bridesmaids were ready, the job was completed! Pictures taken and then it was time for Debi to go downstairs for the Ceremony. The plan was to have an Outdoors Ceremony but the weather put paid to that! The Guests were seated in the Pavilion and Debi came downstairs and went to the Pavilion for the Ceremony.   Fennes Recommended Wedding Photographer

The Rain Stopped

A break in the rain allowed us all to go outside for the everybody shot before it started again. We got on with taking a few requested pictures using the rooms in the house during the Drinks Reception and we were able to use the steps outside for a few more. The rain did ease and we were able to go outside later on, using the Gazebo and the bridge. Fennes Wedding PhotographyDuring the rest of the afternoon we captured some informal pictures before the Guests threw confetti over Debi and Rob. The rain stopped again during the Wedding Breakfast, so in between courses we stepped outside with Debi and Rob for a few pictures. Fennes Wedding Photography

A wedding Sunset

After the Wedding Breakfast as there was time for a few more pictures of Debi and Rob around the House and as the the sun was setting, a lovely sky, both in the lane and on the bridge! Not to be missed!Recommended Wedding Photographer Fennes Evening Guests were arriving as we returned so the Wedding Cake was cut and Debi and Rob had their First Dance. Later on we said our goodbyes. A great day! Thanks to Sharon of Fennes for helping the day to go like clockwork, despite the zip mishap which held together right through the evening!

Fennes Photographer Recommendation

Fennes Photographer Recommendation

We received thisFennes Photographer Recommendation from Ness & Malcolm after their Renewal of vows at Fennes:-

Hi David and Sandra,

Happy New Year.

“David and Sandra’s work is amazing. They captured our day perfectly. They were professional, understanding, gave advice on the type of photo’s and spent time with us. The pre-wedding shoot was a chance for us to get used to each other and really built up a relationship with us. When the big day arrived we both felt really comfortable as did our guests.

Our vicar praised them as being non intrusive through the ceremony which meant that the important part of the ceremony was not dominated by a photographer. David and Sandra perfectly captured these moments without us knowing they were there.

The service they gave us from beginning to end was excellent. David and Sandra captured our personalities, the mood of the day and produced the most amazing album to treasure and can not praise them enough. We would recommend them to any future bride and groom.”

I know the above is long but I wanted to make sure we covered all aspects. Anne was really impressed with your work covering the ceremony, and said you were one of THE best photographers she has ever worked with.

Everyone who has seen the album absolutely love it. Especially the way it is laid out and how you really did capture what the day was all about.

We can not thank you enough for making our day so special.

Kind regards

Ness and Malcolm

Wedding Photographer Fennes Estate for Beth & Alex

Wedding Photographer Fennes Estate for Beth & Alex

It was a nice day when we arrived to be Wedding Photographer Fennes Estate for Alex and Beth’s  Wedding. We arrived early at Fennes as Beth   was getting ready there before the Church Wedding at St Mary’s Church, Bocking. Beth was upstairs in the Bridal Changing Rooms with her Bridesmaids and all was calm and collected.   We got on with taking pictures of Beth’s accessories and details whilst capturing images of the final preparations.

It wasn’t long before Beth and the Bridesmaids were dressed and ready for some photographs. After a couple of pictures upstairs we went downstairs and into the Gold Room. It is really nice when there are no Guests inside the House as we are able to take some pictures in the downstairs rooms before leaving for a Church Wedding. With the pictures taken we left Beth to go to the Church.

St Mary’s Bocking

Alex and his Groomsmen were there carrying out their duties we were able to interrupt them just for a few minutes to take a few pictures.St Mary's Church Bocking Wedding Photographer We took some Guests arrival pictures coming up the path and into the Church before Beth arrived. At the Church Tippi, the Flowergirl, joined Beth, her Father and the Bridesmaids.St Mary's Church Bocking Wedding Photographer Beth and her Father followed the Bridesmaids into the Church for the service. It was a nice service and when it was finished everybody exited the Church for a few quick family pictures.  Beth and Alex then walked down the path being showered by confetti as they went. Returning to Fennes, we got on with the car pictures before the Guests arrived.

The Drinks Reception followed outdoors with the weather holding. Alex and Beth wanted to have plenty of time to spend with their Guests and that is exactly what they had. During the afternoon we took a few smaller group pictures. We spent a few minutes with Beth and Alex taking their pictures as the forecast was not looking too good for later. Wedding Photographer Fennes Estate Then the rain came just before we could get the ‘everybody’ shot done. Thankfully Fennes has lots of space and with the help of the staff we managed to improvise just prior to the Wedding Breakfast.

The Wedding Breakfast

The Wedding Breakfast was held in the Pavilion and this was followed by the Speeches. Afterwards there was Crazy Golf and other games in the Banqueting Hall to keep the adults and children entertained. Later Beth and Alex cut their Wedding Cake and then took to the dance floor for their First Dance. The weather prevented us taking Beth and Alex outside for some evening pictures so we made use of the steps and took the ‘heart’ picture. Fennes Recommended Wedding PhotographerHappy with our pictures we then said our ‘goodbyes’. It was a lovely day and nice to see Stephanie (Alex’s sister)  and Tim, whose Wedding we photographed 21 years ago at Leez Priory!

It was a delight to be back photographing at The Fennes Estate for the Wedding of Katie and Bill. Arriving at Fennes, it was sunny and preparations for the outdoor Ceremony were in full swing. Bill was with his Groomsmen getting ready in the Lodge whilst Katie was with her Mother and Bridesmaids upstairs in the newly refurbished Bridal Changing Room. After taking a few pictures  to capture Bill’s final preparations, the men were ready.  Bill and his Groomsmen had time to socialise with the Guests who were arriving after we had finished.Wedding Photographer Fennes The girls’ preparation pictures were taken and they were in the process of getting dressed. Just before we got on with Katie’s pictures, her Father came upstairs to see his daughter all dressed ready for her Wedding. Katie looked wonderful and after this moment we got on with the rest of the pictures. It was soon time for  Katie to take her Dad’s arm and make her way outside for the Ceremony in the Gazebo. A lovely setting! Recommended Wedding Photographer FennesFollowing the Ceremony the Drinks Reception was held in the gardens. Everyone enjoyed mingling, eating and drinking in the afternoon sun.  In between times we got on with the requested family group pictures ending up with some fun Bridal Party pictures. The breeze proved a bit of a nuisance during the taking of some of the pictures  but we just moved to a different area and carried on. Before the confetti pictures we took Katie and Bill for a short walk around the grounds for their pictures.
